tacks and tackled the job which they had bet'mv
them in a business like manner.
There was displayed a t iding el' cun-erva..
tive optimism which indicated that there is ex.-ii-'ting
now in this county a spirit of eo.upenu
t ii ti between business man and farmer which
will ultimately re-uli in a "New Day for the
two of t hem."
We have long reo.gnia'd the fact 'that the
farmers and (ho business imm are absolutely
dependent upon one another, and for either to
feel tint: they can pi "forward without the sup
port and goodwill of the other is utter folly.
The fact tiia! a creamery is In'ine; establish,

cannery in the county, together with the fact
that the tourist season promises a brighter out.

an assured feeling that the brighter days for

It has been almost two years since the
2 10.00(1 Haywood County Courthouse was com
pleted, yet, today there is not the slightest
sign or indication anywhere on the building to
let strangers know what it is, whether it is a
federal government building or the property of
a private concern.
Certainly a building that is thought as
much of as the Haywood County courthouse is

It ajipears that in trying to do good I have
done harm. Our cat has for several years pre-'
"sen ted us with kittens in March. Heretofore a
box in the corner of the woodshed has btvn used
as the maternity ward., but there was only one
kitten this year and the weather was' so bit tor
cold that we let the 'two occupy a basket in the
bat lirooi-u -for more than ;i week;'. The cat had
been quite the .'.best we ever owned, working
faithfuLl.v to keep down rats and niiee in the
outiuiiidtrgs ittid requiring 'cry little food from
tile table. While she was in the house so much
We had. of course, to give her all she ate and
that's what did the mischief. Since taking her
and the kitten . to the vvoodshed we tind she
seems ruined as a mouser, .Mice are in the ga
rage ; mice nibble at. t he dairy- feed;T fear there
are even mice in the woodshed.. And that cat
spends her time meowing 'at five kitchen door
for food, and is oven "choosey" about- w hat sh-
eats. ;.r .. ''

If certain data we have run across lately
are authentic, the joke about the Saturday, night
bath is "not so old as vve' had imagined. It is
recorded that the. tirst .hath tub put in commis
sion in the I'nited States' was' christened on
('hrist mats day, IS 12.
Linking up the day of the week in a per.
potual calendar, we tind that this was Sunday,
but it is possible that the tirst bath was really
Uiken on Christmas eve, thus establishing the
Satunlay night tradition.
I'pon its introduction the bath tub was
looked, upon with much suspicion, as it is by
small hoys until 'this day, In Boston. .an ordi
nance was passed prohibiting baths except upon
the advice ot a. physician. About' 1ST the Phila
delphia city council came within two votes, of
passing an ordinance prohibiting baths altogeth
er bet ween 'November 1 and iMarch 15.
Hath t ubs Were 'heavily taxed in those
early days, even as the modern automobile.
Shortly after they were introduced into' Virginia
ia state tax of, $-'Ui was imposed on each tub in
stalled, 'St ill .Americans' of those times were more
given to bathing than the old Russians. We
have read somewhere that Peter: the Great
bathed only once a year. Hut there were ex
tenuating circumstances. Russia is a very coM
count rv. Kx. .

The doctor can't do it all. He must delegate the
important duties of nursing and prescription compound
